If I was to drink a 32oz of water in one sitting just slowly let it go down my throat not too fast and not too slow oppose to drinking a 32oz of water through out the day would I still be getting the same benefits of drinking my 8oz or so glasses of water a day???

Just curious...

Thanks for your input on this I greatly appreciate it.

  • Yep. It went in. It doesn't matter if it was thoughout the day or all at once. I thought 64oz was what we need? Did something change? 8oz in a glass, 8 glasses a day....64 oz.

  • that is only 1/2 of your water intake... yes, you would benefit from drinking it, but the point is to drink it throughout the day to stay hydrated. recommended MINIMUM amount of water to drink in one day is 64oz.

  • You'll most likely puke if you drink 32 oz in one sitting.....

    Then there's always water intoxication......

  • She would need way more than 32 oz in order to cause that. Like GALLONS and GALLONS. 32oz is not gallons. That wouls only be 4 glasses of water.

  • LOL @ Chefron...

    LyTe... Do you have ANY Idea how much water it takes to harm? Gallons, and gallons.

    On average, I drink about 1 gallon of water a day + 5 or so cups of coffee.

  • I would imagine you'd get the same benefits...although you will have to pee every five minutes for awhile!

  • Yes I do know. I'm not saying that 32 ounces will kill her. That's not what I was trying to say... It was just a point I was trying to make of drinking a lot of water at once.. that's why I separated the puking comment from that one.

  • I'm notsure if your stomach will like a huge amount of water all at one time. You might have a stomach ache or throw it up. Just drink all day long, gradually.
